SEQ Local Food Summit - People's Day

July 28, 2024

8am-1pm, Sunday 28 July
Food Connect Shed - 8 Textile Cres, Salisbury

Join us (and special guest, author and TV personality Costa Georgiadis) for a day of good food and positive action to kick off the SEQ Local Food Summit with a bang.

‘People’s Day’ is a feel-good festival with purpose - giving you the tools, inspiration and connections you need to eat more locally, and create sustainable change in your home and community. Shop direct from local farmers, learn practical skills at free workshops, get the kids hands-on in their own green activities, and more.

More than just a market, it’s also an opportunity for your voice to be heard - discussions and surveys from People’s Day will be carried forward into important conversations with industry and government on Days 2 and 3 of the Summit, letting them know the challenges, opportunities and visions of local, enviro-conscious foodies.

Program

People’s Day’s full line up is TBC (watch this space!), but you can expect: 

  • Informative, empowering workshops on topics like How To Break Up With Your Supermarket, bulk buying, backyard gardening and more.

  • Lively chats with the one and only Costa

  • A farmers market where you can not only buy from local producers and makers on the day, but find out how you can access their food directly in future

  • Kids activity zone

  • Live music

  • Coffee, brekkie and food trucks to keep us fuelled

Bring the family and your reusable shoppings bags, and let’s have a good time, doing good!
(Please note that the festival will largely be inside the warehouse, so please leave furry friends at home. Service dogs excepted)

Get involved

We’re still on the hunt for a few more local food legends to get on board, from workshop facilitators and on-the-day volunteers to aligned sponsors and a dynamic street team to help us get word out.
